This home page is your starting point for information about the Microsoft OLE DB database technology and the OLE DB Template Library.

It is important to know that Microsoft provides several implementations of OLE DB. OLE DB is a set of COM interfaces that provide uniform access to data in diverse information sources and formats.

The OLE DB templates are C++ templates that make the high-performance OLE DB database technology easier to use by providing classes that implement many commonly used OLE DB interfaces. This template library is divided into consumer templates and provider templates.

Visual C++ also has wizard support for creating OLE DB starter applications.

In addition, you can use attributes to implement the OLE DB consumer templates.
